I have an older xfx680iL MOther board with a Newer gtx260 video card. My question is would i gain anything by uprgading to a newer chipset? 790 or 750? I would gain ddr3 support just wondering if there area any other benefits.

any upgrade would be minimal at best.
Maybe a newer board has more room for OC (i've got a 570 chipset and i do fine)
I wouldn't waste money a new board until you need a different socket, or PCI configuration

i consider the 680iLT, as "the board that got away". either that or my p35, i stuck out with the p35

ddr3 wont get you any benefit videogame-wise. even if there is, its negligible because of the price.

You might get better overclockability with a P45.
If you are not having any problems, I would stick with what you have.
